This is about a recently published video of American botanical illustrator Lara Call Gastinger talking about how her botanical sketching and illustration work is produced.
Plus an opportunity to see more videos of Lara working on her perpetual journal and botanical art
ABOUT LARA CALL GASTINGER (GM 2007, 2018)
ABOUT THE VIDEO: In the Studio with Lara Call Gastinger
This video - which you can see below - has two parts
The first part is a video record of her work. It covers and focuses on
Pay attention, be astonished and tell about it.
The second part of the video is a live demo via Zoom (30 minutes+) - with those watching live "muted".
The video was produced by the UVA Club of Charlottesville as part of its lockdown series of video interviews with its past graduates.
The subjects of her art come from the natural world and reveal detailed evidence of change, decay, and processes that occur in nature. She strives to make a plant portrait in such a way that it reveals its character and uniqueness. Her focus is on the small details in nature, down to the small venations in leaves, which hopefully inspires others to look deeper and pause a bit longer.
Lara's new Patreon Community
You can also see Lara's perpetual journal sketches on Instagram by following her hashtag #lgperpetualjournal - although watch out as not all posts with this hashtag are by Lara as several other people have adopted it so people see their work too!
Lara has also just launched a brand NEW Patreon Community which will be joining others listed on my Online Botanical Art Courses page VERY soon! One of the options gives you access to more recorded demos of her working on creating botanical art and nature journalling. Check out her launch email about this here
This is a new addition to her Zoom Online Classes on Botanical Journalling which are already SOLD OUT!
